May 13, 2013 11:00 AM PST

CLEARWATER, Fla. — Producers of the 7th Annual StorErotica Awards have announced this year’s nominees.

Winners will be announced at an industry gala on July 14, during the semi-annual ANME Founders Show in Burbank, California.

For the third straight year, StoreErotica Magazine has partnered with the producers of the Adult Novelty Manufacturers Expo (ANME) as event host for the 2013 StoreErotica Awards Show. Held at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport on July 13-15, the semi-annual ANME Founders Show will once again feature the top brands in the adult toy and novelty industry. Hosting the awards this year will be author Dr. Sadie Allison, founder of Tickle Kitty Inc. 

Voting for the 2013 StorErotica Awards will be accepted online only at StorEroticaAwards.com.  This voting website will be live only from May 15 through June 7.

Recognizing excellence in the adult retail community, the Awards laud those in both the brick and mortar storefront, distributing and manufacturing levels. The 10 categories honored this year include, “Novelty Company of the Year,” “Distributor of the Year”, “Fetish Company of the Year” and “Retailer of the Year” (chain locations), among others. This year’s ballot was finalized after a process involving the pre-nomination website, while also gathering input from select industry experts and suggestions by the StorErotica staff. 

Host Sadie Allison is author and publisher of the popular line of how-to sex-help books available to adult retailers. Her best-selling books include "Tickle His Pickle," "TOYGASMS!," "Ride 'Em Cowgirl!," "Tickle Your Fancy" and her newest book, "Tickle My Tush."

“I’m very excited to be hosting this year’s StorErotica Awards,” Allison said.“Celebrating those who continue to make this industry extraordinary is a unique opportunity for me.  I’m looking forward to this special evening.” 

“Presenting at such a distinguished event such as ANME not only helps reflect the totality of our industry, but also celebrates the continual innovation and camaraderie found within," StorErotica's Kristofer Kay added.
